David Banner, Vince Staples, Gunplay, and Conway in this Week in Hip-Hop.

Conway releases “Humble” remix

Buffalo native Conway made waves this week when he released a freestyle over Kendrick Lamar’s Humble. The title of his version Not Humble perfectly fits aggressive, hard-hitting style. The potential XXL freshman uses Kendrick’s flow and adds a grimy, New York twist to Mike Will-Made It’s instrumental.  Back in March, Conway and his fellow Buffalo native Westside Gunn signed a deal with Shady Records. If he continues putting out tracks such as these, his name will be here to stay.

He also revealed the title of his upcoming album The Plug, which is set to release on June 9th.

Vince Staples Gives Release Date to Sophomore Album

Long Beach’s own Vince Staples has officially announced the release date to his second album, Big Fish Theory. The project is slated to drop June 23rd via Def Jam. Staples made the announcement during an interview with Zane Lowe this week. He also dropped his second single from the upcoming album, titled Big Fish.

David Banner Releases First Album in Seven Years

Rap veteran David Banner is officially back. The Mississippi-bred producer and rapper released his new album titled The God Box. The new project features artists such as fellow Mississippian Big K.R.I.T, Cee Lo Green, and Black Thought. Banner wants to have his album up for interpretation.

It’s more than an album, it’s an art exhibit,” Banner said in a statement released to xxlmag. “It’s sort of like a secret. It’s something that people are going to have to come to their own conclusions on. Everyone will get something different out of the album; and I’ll let the listener decide what that is.”
